Last week's episode of Breaking Bad began with a flashback to Walt and Jesse's first cook in the desert. The master and apprentice have come a long way over the years, and now find themselves in a potentially deadly situation as Jack and his goons have opened fire on Hank and Gomez in the desert. It looked like the writing was on the wall for one or both of them. It certainly was.
With Gomez lying dead, Hank finds himself wounded and at Jack's mercy. Though Walt begs for Hank's life, his brother-in-law, but Hank knows what's coming and invites Jack to "do what he has to do." Jack obliges and puts a bullet through Hank's head, swiftly concluding Hank's quest to nab Heisenberg once and for all. Hank, naturally, is crushed.
After Hank's death, Jack and his men find Jesse hiding under a car and drag him away after Walt tells them where he is. Jack takes all of Walt's money, the whole reason he "broke bad" to begin with, save for one lone barrel that Todd convinces his uncle Jack to leave behind. In the hole where the money was once stashed is where Jack's men unceremoniously dump Hank and Gomez's bodies.
Crushed and ultimately defeated, Walt rolls his money barrel down the road and eventually comes upon a home where he buys a truck. With what money he has left, Walt takes off for home but things, as expected don't quite go as planned upon his arrival.
Skylar, Marie and Junior find Walt back at home stuffing suitcases and making a plea that it's time to leave. This whole time Junior has had no idea about what his father does in his spare time. Now he knows something is up, and when the truth comes out, Junior sides with his mother and Skyler ends up striking Walt's hand with a knife. The one thing Walt has been fighting for this entire time, his family, is now as lost as his money.
Hitting rock bottom, Walt grabs Baby Holly on the way out of the house, unbeknownst to Skyler, and takes off. Now he's a kidnapper of his own child and on the run. Walt eventually leaves Baby Holly to be picked up, while Jesse finds himself being tortured and forced to cook for Todd. At least Jesse is still alive, while Walt ends up boarding the disappearer van that was originally for Jesse.
AMC is up to their old tricks again and has issued only a single sentence to describe tonight's episode, "Events set in motion long ago move toward a conclusion." At some point we should catch up with Walt on the run as the flash-forward showed in the Season 6 premiere.
